What topics can I ask about here?
Skeptics Stack Exchange is for challenging unreferenced notable claims, pseudoscience and biased results.
Skeptics is about applying skepticism — it is for researching the evidence behind claims you encounter. It is not for speculation, philosophical discussions or investigating original claims.
New users (even users familiar with the Stack Exchange format) should read our introduction to the site before posting.
If you have a question about the accuracy of public claims made in the media or elsewhere, if you're interested in the evidence behind what you hear or read, then you are in the right place.
If your question is not about a particular explicit claim, or if it is about research-level science, the following sites may be better suited for your needs:
- Biology - Stack Exchange
- Chemistry - Stack Exchange
- Medical Sciences - Stack Exchange
- Physics - Stack Exchange
See the full list of Stack Exchange sites for more.
